We didn’t have Auntie Nita as our guide, but someone else. While the conversation itself was enjoyable at points, we ended up needing much more details and information about the tour and the location we were in, things that are expected while on a Guru Walk tour. I’m sorry we’re not able to give a higher rating and I understand others had a better experience with Anita, but this was not our case.

Sadly, I would avoid at all cost. It was an incredibly awkward “tour” if it can even qualify as one. Little to no information given, no real planned stops, just a lot of unrelated opinions about current politics and world events (not related to the tour at all), who the guide voted for, their opinion on Russia-Ukraine, etc.) It seems as if there were no planned stops, just stopping and awkwardly making small talks - little description of the area, history etc. Thankfully the area itself was very pretty
